"The First Spring Sewing"

When the rush of mid-winter is over and all cleaning and ripping of garments are done with, the weary woman has a chance to sit down and think of cotton dresses. These usually come in before, and after, the first woolen gown arranged for Easter. In fact, cotton gowns seem to be in the stage of making from February until July, and as they promise to be more worn than ever this year one can hardly have too many of them. The beauty of a cotton gown is its fresh, cool and clean appearance and not its expense.
